Ok thanks for the info. I’m in CA, so it’s pretty warm most of the year. In the 90s now in the summer. I’ve heard too of members running 5w-20 synthetic. The specs state a 0w-20 oil, but I know there are some different thoughts on that with this specific type of engine and issues with the oil getting past the rings with the VCM.
Just curious, with replacing the rings, are they the original OEM rings, or did Honda use a different updated part number to address the problem?
